, but not bomb making. the stockpile beyond that level will be diluted or converted so it cannot be used for weapons purposes. they will agree to nuclear inspections including daily visits to some facilities. in exchange, the u.s. agreed to provide $7 billion in sanctions relief. last night, president obama hailed the agreement as a step toward a world that is more secure. >> these are substantial limitations which will help prevent iran from building a nuclear weapon. simply put, they cut off iran's most likely paths to a bomb. meanwhile, this first step will create time and space over six months for more negotiations to fully address the comprehensive concerns about the iranian program. because of this agreement, iran cannot use negotiations as cover to advance its program. >> secretary of state, john kerry who flew to geneva praised the deal, admitting it's just a first step. >> the next phase, let me be clear, will be even more difficult and we need to be honest about it. it will also be more consequential. while we obviously have profound differences with iran, yet to be resolved, t

the necessity of u.s. leadership come at a heady time, as american's deeply dysfunctional domestic politics may prove a problem for the next step in a multi-lateral negotiation with iran. now, it has been more than a decade since the international atomic energy agency, the iaea discovered traces of enriched uranium in iran that put the world on alert. in that decade, world leaders have used sanctions and talks to try to dismantle iran's nuclear capacity. time that many observers claim that iran has used to move closer to weapon capacity. then this fall, the new iranian president, hasan rouhani visited the u.n. and chatted with president obama by phone, and sent the tweet that was heard around the world. negotiations resumed. john kerry and several other world powers failed to come to an agreement last weekend, but lower level representatives are set to meet again this week to try to come up with a solution. in the meantime, the white house and senate are locked in a stalemate with the latter threatening to pass even tougher sanctions against iran. and president obama pleaded for patience, so th

-in ceremonies for popular elected u.s. presidents. america's 36th president was inaugurated before an audience of 27 people in a cramped cabin on board air force one while it sat on the runway at dallas' love field. it was the first and only swearing in to take place on board a plane and the only one to be officiated by a woman, johnson's friend, u.s. district judge sarah t. hughes. instead of the usual bible he placed his hans on a catholic liturgical book that was found on a side table in air force one's presidential bedroom. and yet that moment, that quiet unsayre moanious transfer of power was the beginning of something big because as president, lyndon johnson would go on to implement a policy agenda of social reform that he called the great society. and it would become the most sweeping transformation of american domestic policy since president franklin roosevelt's new deal. johnson laid out his vision of a great society in a 1964 commencement speech at the university of michigan. >> the great society rests on abundance and liberty for all. it demands an end to poverty and racial injustic

to the supreme court. and they have used confederate-era tactics of attempted millification to kill the law upon implementation. and now, well now, democrats are joining in! howling about the horrors of obama care and its faulty website. and yesterday the u.s. house of representatives approved a bill proposed by congressman fred upton that would allow insurers to keep selling their subpar plans not only to people who had them before but to new customers as well. which really just means that insurance companies can keep making massive profits from vulnerable people in the individual market without providing them meaningful protection. so i'm thinking maybe the resistance is just winning. maybe we're going to fail again to extend health care to the american people. and not only that, but maybe the americans who actually most need the coverage are going to cheer even as they defeat the very policy that could have helped them and in the kind of ugly place in my gut i think, well, good luck with that. because sometimes you just get the democracy that you deserve. anybody in "nerdland" want to talk me

over the last decade gave u.s. travelers their most palpable experience of a life in a post 9/11 world, performance of the ritual, the ticket counter interrogation, the tiny bottles of liquid, the invasive hand searches, removing of shoes. they're supposed to be assurances of safe passage. yesterday a man with a gun walks into an airport and pulls the trigger. and reminds us just how vulnerable we really are. i'm going to turn to los angeles where nbc news correspondent miguel almaguer is at the l.a.x. airport with the latest on this story. miguel? >> reporter: good morning. the suspect is paul ciancia, 23 years old. police say he entered the terminal just over my left shoulder at around 9:30 a.m. friday morning and he pulled out a rifle, they say, from a bag, then began to open fire. he may have been targeting tsa agents according to many witnesses. he then was able to breach security, made it about 100 yards into the terminal where he was engaged with police in another gun battle. he was wounded and taken into custody but not before he killed a tsa agent as well as injuring several o

in the u.s. and in particular, to race and the gop. now, you may have heard this week that new governor-elect of virginia, terry mcauliffe, owes his win last tuesday to women. women, they say, voted against mcauliffe's opponent. you know, attorney general bob cuccinelli. we like to call him around here, cuch. he'll be known as teddy mccuch, because of his draconian policies against reproductive rights, is widely popular sex acts and the like. i can see how you might make that mistake. if you look at the exit polls, it looks like mcauliffe had a nine-point edge on the cuch among women, but nine points does not exactly a gender gap make. now, it's true that almost every black woman in the state of virginia voted and voted for mcauliffe, but white women, well, most white women still voted republican. look at these numbers. 91% of african-american women voted democrat, but 54% of white women, a sizable majority there, voted republican. and this is despite the fact that the republican candidate aggressively opposed abortion, and as an attorney general, forced clinics to close. that he pushed
